7:08am
we've been looking at the livermore valley. remember, we had the drive time of 18 minutes. now it's 35 minutes from grant line road to 680. so it's almost doubled there as we thought it would. no problems getting into castro valley as you drive through. let's get to some live pictures, bay bridge has been slower than normal because of an earlier crash on the bridge. we normally have about a 20- minute delay this morning. it's about 30. it's not all that bad. but it will take you longer just so -- just so you know. if you are driving on 880 northbound and southbound, this traffic looks good by the coliseum. >> let's go to steve. a little change here, a long stretch of dry weather is about to end tomorrow. mostly sunny. but already some noticeable changes on parts of the coast where it is a good, 10, 15 degrees cooler than it was at this time yesterday. a little change in our wind direction. there's still a slight component of an offshore breeze. but two system, one to the north, one to the southwest will begin to slowly work their

7:19am
president obama is washington insider, jamie due pru. it's sose nice to see you -- jamie dupree. it's so nice to see you in person. you've covered a few inaugurations in your time. what was your impression of this one? >> the president didn't seem to hold anything back. it was almost line he was freed. we all know what the agenda and platform stands for. but he certainly laid out a lot of markers. when you talk about immigration reform, he's talked about that, he mentioned gay rights and voting rights and climate change. of course, i would remind everybody just because it's mentioned in a speech does not mean it gets enacted but still to put all of those things in a row out there, i thought it was very, very interesting. he was pushing a liberal agenda. you listen to talk radio on the republican said, there was a lot of angst out there. there will have their shot to try to slow the president down.
7:20am
>> we mentioned there are a couple of inaugural events going on. but the president will be soon getting down to business. will be focusing on this liberal agenda? what are some of the real challenges? >> well, just the votes in congress. i mean, let's face it. when he had control, the democrats did, of the house and senate, they were unable to push a climate change bill through. one would think the votes are not there but maybe they can do -- can do something administratively. let's forget the one thing that was not discussed too much was the gun issue. i mean it was referred to but i think we'll see a lot more on that. let's see what he says in the state of the union address about all of these things. that would give us a further insight into how hard he will push. the fact, there's still a republican house and a democratic senate. >> i talked to nancy pelosi earlier being out here and i asked her about the chance dash is there any chance they will be able to get rid of the logjam in washington, d.c. i know the politics are set aside
7:21am
during the inauguration but they have to start to get along. >> maybe one on immigration reform. that's one i sense, the chamber of commerce has been pushing on it. but we'll see on that. when it comes to gay rights, for example, what exactly does he want to do? that's the details i think we don't know about. as you well know, just mentioning something and putting it on the table, not only excites the supporters but then puts attention on it. but, of course, the congress only has so much oxygen on so many issues and i think the gun violence issue is gonna take a lot of attention and a lot of energy from this white house in the months ahead. >> we talked in the past how you need to pick your battles and see how much political you want to burn. and there's the economy, the jobs which was his focus for the first term. >> yes, and we have the fiscal
7:22am
cliffs. the automatic budget cuts, what to do with the federal budget, so yes a lot of things and then as you mentioned, the economy still underneath everything. that will be a big issue as we move forward this year. >> reporter: one last question, what do you think his legacy will be? >> that will depend on what gets done. i mean, you can give all of the great speeches you want and lay out all of the great plans but if you don't get anything done that will be your legacy. we'll see. i mean, right now, healthcare is certainly his legacy, where the economy goes will depend on how he's viewed in the long- term, too. >> reporter: thank you. nice to see you. appreciate it. you can find a link to jamie's blog at ktvu.com. i just spoke to darrell steinberg, mup in my next report, his special issue he's pushing during his visit and how the nation's capital has a different view of california than it did four years ago. reporting live in washington,
